Dealing with a Dilemma: Distinguishing Anthropology Materials from Other Pre-collegiate Social Studies Materials.
Dynneson, Thomas L.
This paper is a lead-in to a book entitled "Pre-Collegiate Anthropology: Trends and Materials" (SO 008 751) published in 1975 by the Anthropology Curriculum Study Project (ACSP). Topics discussed include the processes and procedures which ACSP used to gather materials for the publication, the sources of the anthropology materials, processes used for screening materials, and the screening procedures. It is noted that precollegiate anthropology curriculum materials are steadily increasing in numbers. However, because most social studies teachers were trained in departments of history, they have difficulty distinguishing sound anthropological materials from other content which only coincidentally contains anthropological issues or concerns. Therefore, an important task for both educators and anthropologists is to establish sound procedures for the evaluation, dissemination, and adoption of K-12 anthropology materials. The book was published to help with this process. (Author/RM)
